We have several fantastic opportunities for Asset Engineers to join our high performing and social Tauranga team. Due to our long-term partnerships with the NZ Transport Agency and local authority clients we have a strong pipeline of work across the region and are looking for analytical minds to join us!

The opportunity

As an Asset Engineer, you’ll be part of our road asset management team.  The team delivers asset management planning, analysis, forward works programming, pavement design, asset data collection surveys, asset database management and asset valuations for roading and other transportation assets. 

We’re a collaborative and dedicated team spread across different career levels so there is great mentoring support and opportunities to take ownership of your personal growth and development.

Your responsibilities will be to support the senior asset managers and engineers in providing professional advice to our clients to effectively and efficiently manage their roading networks.

Day to day activities in this role will range from:

  • Analysing asset data to inform good decisions
  • Supporting the development of forward works programmes
  • Failure mode analysis and treatment selection
  • Preparing reports on asset performance, condition and effectiveness of investment
  • Net Present Value analysis
  • Supporting the delivery of asset data collection activities and surveys
  • Designing pavement rehabilitation and thin asphaltic concrete treatments
  • Working with the team to improve processes
  • Supporting with asset revaluation
  • Database management; inputting and checking to ensure high quality data
  • Developing positive relationships with our clients and working with them to find solutions to their problems

About you

The ideal candidate will hold a bachelor’s degree, or equivalent, in a relevant engineer field and have a technical awareness of asset management systems and processes.  An understanding of roading assets, particularly road surfacing and pavement construction and performance would be an advantage.  Good interpersonal skills are necessary for both interacting with our clients and working within the team.  

Your experience and attributes will include:

  • Effective and clear communication skills, both written and verbal, to a variety of audiences of varying technical nature
  • A ‘doer’ who love seeing projects from ideation through to delivery
  • A team player who enjoys working in a consulting environment with a diverse range of stakeholders to collaboratively identify the best solution for the client
  • Able to consider multiple options, identify risks and problem solve throughout the project lifecycle
  • You are known for being an open-minded and innovative thinker
  • A natural multi-tasker who enjoys balancing a broad range of responsibilities 
  • A fast learner who wants to learn new systems and processes
  • Proficient in Microsoft office packages
  • A good approach to health and safety and how to work safely

Some travel and field work is required as part of this role, as such a full and clean driver’s license is essential.
